This tutorial explains how to automatically save photos and videos to OneDrive in Windows 10 PC.
OneDrive has a native feature to save photos and videos from the device connected with your PC. That means, whenever you will connect a camera, your Phone, USB flash drive, or other supported device, you will be able to save photos and videos from that device to OneDrive folder in your Windows 10 PC.
Photos and videos are saved intelligently by OneDrive. That means, when you connect the same device next time, it will save only new photos and videos. Many common and uncommon image and video formats are supported to import to OneDrive: JPEG, TIF, RAW, RAF, MOV, AVI, ASF, WMV, MP4, GIF, PNG, DIB, NEF, NRW, 3G2, M2T, MP4V, LRV, MTS, ARW, CRW, KDC, SRW, and more.
